I am living the life of a prisoner with my husband

I married this man because he said he would be on my side, and now he is doing the exact opposite just because we have a daughter and he knows I can’t let her suffer.

Can you ever be too patient?

If I believe this to be my future husband, do I continue to have sabr? Is there a point where one can have too much sabr?

Unmarried at 29. How to deal with the societal pressure and resentment?

I’d like to know how one can deal with the pressure and social anxiety about being unmarried in the late 20s while everyone around them gets hitched.

Trust Issues

Can there be a marriage without trust?

His parents won’t let him marry me.

Should I take this as a sign to implement ‘sabr’ and wait it out to see if they end up agreeing, or should I take this as a sign of Allah trying to keep me away from the marriage?

I am not able to forgive myself for my behavior…

What I did and said is killing me so much for doing this to my mother, under whose feet is jannah and who Allah has commanded to be kind to.

What is the status of the chronically ill in the hereafter?

Can you elaborate on what status is given to sick people, such as chronically ill people whose lives have changed because of it but who accept Allah’s SWT decree wholeheartedly- will they be forgiven in the hereafter ?

Love and sex before marriage

She told me that she does NOT want to have sex before marriage. But would it be OK if we did as we both know we are going to marry each other? oh and the other thing is that we have not had sex, but we do kiss and have slept in the same bed but not done anything, is that also wrong in islam?

Hardships of Nice Muslim finding a nice Muslimah

I am a 23 year old practicing Muslim. I have kept myself chaste and pure for Allah and for whoever my future wife will be. I have also always told whoever I met that I am looking for a chaste, pious Muslimah which is like myself a virgin, prays, and is an active Muslim (as it states implicitly from Surah Al-Noor Ayats 4 and 26…somebody similar to me). I know that I would not be able to live with such knowledge and would not be able to trust a person who in the past had no problems doing such a thing (what makes it so they couldn’t do this in marriage if then). In the end this would turn to a relationship that I would be unhappy with, depression would arise (and has) and hence treat that person unfairly or look at them differently and I fear Allah too much to be unjust to that person.
